Hey guys, 

Wanted to show you some throw levers I manufacture.  A buddy late last year commented how he loves the function throw levers offer, but how he wouldn't buy them because he didn't think the cost was worth the benefit...so we 3D printed a few.

Since then my partner and I have expanded to have the largest selection of throw levers available (I think).  We have thousands of levers out to customers and have refined the design to be low-profile, but also offer the strength needed.  We print from PETG filament, which is what soda bottles are made of.  We install an expanding brass thread insert via heat and pressure that a 4-40 bolt threads into.

Our most popular models are the Vortex line, but we also sell a large amount of Nightforce NXS, Primary Arms, and recently Athlon levers since we introduced them.  Most popular scopes we have a throw lever for.

Additionally, we also sell 3D printed scope and rail mounted levels of our own design, and machine aluminum scope levels, and have aluminum rail mounted coming soon.  There is a an "ultra low profile" design that shares many similarities with our throw levers, and a hinged option that particularly in aluminum is very nice.  The hinge and slim form factor mean you can install it without removing your scope, and only have one bolt to tighten down...meaning no more fiddling with two bolts to get your level set perfectly.

Enough rambling, here's some pics, and I'll post a for sale ad in the proper forum:

That's great to have a cheaper option.  $60 is the exact reason why I have not bought any.

You need to do one for Trijicon Accupoint scopes and Swara Z6.  (or will the VTX A also fit the Z6)?

You mean like this?  Just need to print another to take a picture then get it up on the site!



VTX A will not fit the Z6, as it looks like the Z6 has a tab on the mag ring.  One of our current models may fit though.  We usually have a customer send measurements, if we don't have a lever for that model they can send in their scope for a free throw lever and then we have the file!
